Summer Sevens

So I’ve been a little absent from the blog world lately. I’m afraid I’ve no real excuses. I haven’t been particularly extra busy, but somehow I took a break for week and it turned into six. So I thought I’d start back with a quick post of seven photos of my last six weeks of the non-crafty things I’ve been up to, before I move onto the crafty ones.

July started with me busy helping organise the village fair – if you’re local and missed it, look out for it next year, it really is growing into an amazing event.

We’ve had lots of lovely hot sunny weather which meant trips to the beach

And lovely sunny walks…

We even went up country once and saw the girls – who don’t like their photos on the blog, so instead here’s a pic of sign at a service station on the A303 – I’ve never seen a service station that doesn’t allow dogs. We certainly won’t be stopping there again.

At home we’ve mostly been gardening, but I don’t seem to have taken any pics of anything looking pretty in the garden…

And that really is about it.

Hope you’ve all had a great summer.

I’ll be back soon with some crafty posts.

Until next time

Sunday Sevens#18 2019

Welcome to my Sunday Sevens – a post where I share seven (or so) photos of my week away from the blog.

Last Sunday we took a walk along the river Okement at Fatherford and had a sit at this spot watching the water flow through the rocks. Coincidentally this is were I saved the sheep from drowning that I mention in Thursday’s post – hard to believe in wetter weather so much of this is under water.

Of course, after a nice walk at Fatherford it’s compulsory to have brunch at the station…

Although it has been very dry, it’s also been very dank and wet at times…

Unsurprisingly in a mix of warm and wet weather the greenery is growing like mad and dog walking paths are getting thinner…

This week I finished A Place Called Winter by Patrick Gale. It didn’t really grab me – you know I’m hard to please. There were lots of interesting ideas raised, just none of them explored sufficiently. It was still, however, very thought provoking, but I couldn’t understand why the main character hadn’t noticed he was more interest in men than women when he was a lot younger.

In an unusual turn of events, Hubby cleaned out my car. Here are the items he though I didn’t really need to keep in it…

Anyone know what the item at the top of the picture is?

In more usual activities I bought some wool for my next project…

And to keep things in balance, I trucked up at produce morning on Saturday and sold some…

And somewhere during the week, this arrived…

Thank you to Lynn – looks like exactly like what I was asking for when I wanted suggestions of a sewing book to buy a couple of weeks ago.

As I also mentioned on Thursday, I’ve been to the physio. While the physiotherapist was out of the room, printing my Personal Exercise Programme, I took a quick snap of the curtain rail.

Can anyone offer an explanation why it would be hung like this? There was no obvious reason I could see.

Hope you’ve had a great week.

Until next time,
